William Cornell and his wife Mary posing before their pub.
William is seated with his grandchild in a cart pulled by a white horse.

The sign over the door reads:
"William Cornell, licensed to retail beer to be consumed on the premises.
Dealer in tobacco. Licensed brewer."

William was listed as a brewer and beerhouse keeper until 1892, when he was
listed as a publican. He was married to Mary A. Cornell, and they had a daughter
Susan Jarvis, married to Alfred Jarvis. They had 2 sons: Ernest W. and Alfred C.
Ernest was born in 1879, so the photo could've been made around 1879-1880.

The pub was later known as the Butchers Arms on Sewards End Road. The address then
became 4 Walden Road in Saffron Walden. In 1936 the pub was renamed "The Green Dragon".
The pub closed in 1994 and was demolished in 1996, to make way for 8 new houses.
